I can handle that kind of "inclement" weather :)

Very nice, I've always wanted to go and visit.

Just today my wife and I were talking about how beautiful Washington is. This fits right into the conversation.
Great photo.

Wow. I'm going out West soon to visit my sister in California. If I have time, I really have to go up to Washington.

Perfect composition from the tip of the reflection to the sapphire blue sky. Makes us all want to flock to Washington!!!

Sharon said...

It's funny that the first word that came into my mind when I saw this photo was "perfect". Then I glanced through the comments and saw that word used 2 other times. So I'm going to make it 3...
PERFECT! Love this photo:)

Pam said...

What a spectaculat photo. I love the way the blue of the sky is reflected in the water. Have a great weekend.

VALKYRIEN said...

What a gorgeous shot! So vivid and soft at the same time! Lovely blue sky to top it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

In all its simplicity (or perhaps just because it) this is a masterpiece Linnea. There's depth and symmetry and I love how the skyline and the waterline almost fade together on each side of the island.

Carol said...

Great shot! Beautiful shades of blue...

Regina said...

A perfect shot.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Beautiful sky shot. the island looks like it could be apart of the show Lost. Happy Skywatch Friday!

Mari said...

That is simply beautiful!

prkl said...

Lovely island, looks like it's floating in the water. Great shot! Happy SWF!

Daryl said...

the only reason is wasnt raining in that photo is because all your rain has been here in NYC for a week!

CTG Ponies said...

That is gorgeous!!

Wenche said...

It looks like a paradise:) The island and the blue colour are gorgeous.

Lisa Wilson said...

So beautiful!! I have a friend who grew up in Washington and she always talks about how beautiful it is.

Karen said...

Oh, it's just a lie we tell to keep more Californians from moving here. :) I had to look up Burrows Island, since I hadn't heard of it before. I guess the lighthouse must be around the other side. Happy SWF!

Ebie said...

That's a lovely and peaceful photograph.

Dot O said...

This just spectacular!!

My first thought was 'Bali Hai'. What a beautiful, peaceful scene. By the way, re your comment, I think we do often take similar photos, but yours are better composed!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Quite a drawcard indeed!

Tammie Lee said...

This photo is pure magic!

Pacey said...

Wow, that's a very serene and scenic place. I love the blue colors.

Sara Chapman said...

I love all the photos on this page, but this one is a stunner. The sea (or Sound?) is like glass and the island floats in the sky. Wonderful.

What an amazing island photograph ... I love the various shades of blue and the shadowy reflection too. Sorry I've not visited in a while. Life's been BUSY, but I'm taking time to do some catch up this morning ... finally. I'm glad I didn't miss THIS ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
